On Saturday, February 8th, thespians of Ramona Convent Secondary School attended a bi-annual convention and gathering held at San Marino High School called GameCon. This event is held to give students the opportunity to participate in improvisation workshops taught by professional actors and coaches from ComedySportz LA.
The ComedySportz High School League® is the largest, most successful improv training program for high school students in the country. The High School League® empowers students to create their own theatre and nourishes their communication skills through improvisational theatre workshops and performances. It encourages their individuality and provides the forum to succeed or fail in a safe environment that combines showmanship and sportsmanship. The League provides an extracurricular activity that goes beyond stage work into everyday situations. And the students just think they’re having fun!
ComedySportz Los Angeles has established varsity teams in schools across five counties in Southern California, where “winning” is the least important part of the game. Each teams’ student manager has the opportunity to organize matches between their high school and other high schools. Ramona Convent’s team of talented young improv actors will be hosting matches on March 21st and 22nd at 7pm and on April 10th and 12th at 7pm in the Holy Family Room. All who enjoy spontaneous comedy, friendly competition, and audience participation are welcome to join us for an evening of laughter and fun for just $5! Each show is fun for all ages and is guaranteed to be different each night!
